A Libertarian candidate from Salem has announced he will be a candidate for 107th State Representative. Thadeus Freed is in hopes of breaking the two-party system and being a better voice for district residents.

Freed says he believes people and business "flourish best when not bled dry through taxation or micromanaged by bureaucrats". He says the actions taken by the General Assembly over the past two years, including the 32-percent increase in the personal income tax, "show a clear disconnect between themselves and their constituents".

Freed reports he and all his fellow Libertarians "want all Illinoisans to enjoy more freedom and choices". He says, "the people of the district deserve a representative they can count on to support fiscally responsible policies, that will foster growth and economic prosperity". Freed says a smaller government can run leaner, leaving more of your earnings where they belong: in your pocket.

Ultimately, Freed wants to work to make the 107th District an ideal place to live, work and raise a family.

The 107th District includes all or parts of Marion, Fayette, Effingham, Bond and Clinton Counties.
